Marshes Meet Ups

Exploring Burnt Church Distillery

An adventurous group of Marshes’ residents recently found themselves deep in the heart of Burnt Church Distillery in Bluffton, SC. They were all part of a tour group exploring the history of Bluffton, its ups and downs through the antebellum age, to the mystery behind Burnt Church Road.

The tour group gained further insight into the distillery’s operations, from its mechanics to the ingredients that make these South Carolina-sourced products the best in class.

Resident Raves

“With four sons living in Maine and New Hampshire, our move to The Marshes has given them and us enormous peace of mind. We were eager to eliminate the minutiae of daily life as a homeowner and join this very special community.”

Patty F.

“If you talk to one of the chefs and let him know there is something you would like to see on the menu, it very often appears. I once asked what was on tomorrow’s Bistro menu and [the chef] asked if there was something I wanted. The following week it was on the menu.”

Bob N.

“The staff really cares about us. We are treated like family! We still receive cards from our first housekeeper who retired three years ago.”

M/M C.

Here are the some of the most common questions we hear from future residents:

A Life Plan Community offers residents the benefit of a vital and socially active community along with access to on-site health care services through a continuum of care. At The Marshes, we offer Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing all on one campus. As the health status of a senior changes, the progression of care adjusts. This unique life plan allows individuals to age in place in a comfortable and familiar setting.

An entrance fee is a one-time fee paid by a person moving into the community and varies based on floorplan. Our refundable entrance fee typically offers 90%, and sometimes 80% or 50%, refund options to you or your estate.

The Marshes has been managed by Life Care Services (LCS), since it opened in 2004. As one of the nation’s leading and most progressive forces in the senior living management industry, LCS has over 45 years of experience managing more than 140 communities across the country. The Marshes is owned and sponsored by Skidaway Health and Living Services, Inc. (SHALSI), a Savannah-based nonprofit corporation. SHALSI is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

The Island Club offers a formal dining room, casual bistro, lounge overlooking the marsh with a well-stocked bar, private dining room, spacious ballroom, library, computer center, and card and game rooms. The Palmetto Club includes an indoor heated pool, hot tub, exercise area, and a greenhouse. The cottage park area offers bocce ball, miles of walking paths, and is steps away from Skidaway State Park.
